I had so much fun at yesterday's virtual birthday party, for those of you who missed it, go back and check out the amazing goodies that people "brought" to the party. I was inspired by Lisa's goodie bags and Lynn's misted butterflies (I misted the bat on the bag). I had the day off today and decided, with some help of Mr. Ben, that we'd make some bat cookies for my mom, who's been hard at work on her haunted house.
Since I've made a Halloween themed card it works for Wee Memories "Holiday Madness" challenge and the CAS-ual Friday "Orange You Ready to Trick Or Treat" (Halloween card without orange). I paper piereced out the bat and spiders for Lawnscaping's Paper Piercing challenge. And this week's PTI Make It Monday challenge is layered mats and frames and I love that by using that technique I have a window into the goodie bag.
And many of you know that I have crafty children, who love to take part in my crafty obsession. So Ben decorated his bag with an assortment of Lawn Fawn and Craft Lounge stamps (which didn't work so well onto the bag, but then he used a piece of Core'dinations card stock and added a few more images). He wanted to make sure his bag had 5 cookies in it so Nana could share them with the people working on rebuilding her house. (So the painter, the electrician and the floor installer were all very happy to see us). Ben is going to enter this in the new Craft Your Passion Kids challenge. And below are some photos of the Ben inspired bat room in the haunted house.
